A bright and sunny morning here in Zao with some lovely blue skies above the mountain. -1C, no wind, all is calm.

That's great, but we want and need snow, so when's it coming Snow Gods? If the forecast is to be believed, perhaps our calls and prayers will be answered in the second half of this week with consistent snowfall forecast. Cold, snowy, windy. That's what we need. (Well, maybe not the wind bit!)

In the meantime, there may not be much snow yet but it's a beautiful day to be out on the mountain.
